This is a replacement for another missing corkscrew of the same style. I ordered this after having to open our Christmas wine with a woodscrew and a cordless screwdriver. This corkscrew is by far more elegant and and a very satisfactory purchase!

I purchased this corkscrew as a gift for a party. The host opened the package and tried opening a bottle of wine with it. She was not able to. I tried. I was not able to. Several other people tried and the product completely fails.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Opened the box. Tried to open a bottle of wine and it completely failed as a corkscrew and serves no function whatsoever.
This wonderful little device worked just as advertised: opened my favorite bottle of Merlot with little or no effort! It screwed into the cork straight and true, the rotating easy grip handles folded down, a couple of turns, and my cork was out! I look forward to opening many more bottles with this convenient tool; plus it fits easily into any kitchen drawer or wine rack accessory board. Definitely a must have for any wine drinker or cork screw collector!
The corkscrew is well made. It has a good weight to it so you can tell it's made of quality metal. Have only used it once, but seemed very solid and easy to use. I had a cheap one before which broke because the metal was so lightweight. Comparing the two, this one is a serious kitchen/bar tool.
